Co-Founder, Kosovo Women’s Chamber of Commerce
I always find myself working, not stopping. In every work, whether I do it for money or pro bono, I find benefits. You learn something that could be helpful in the future. Maybe 10 years under occupation of the Milošević regime built that into our soul.
Linda Shala is a businesswoman and entrepreneuer. Originally from Prishtina, Shala began her professional career working in television journalism, but when the Albanian television stations were closed during the Milošević regime, Shala lost her job, prompting her to defiantly turn to entrepreneurism. She’s carried that spirit with her for the past two decades, establishing herself as one of Prishtina’s leading women in business, and co-founding the women’s chamber of commerce to help support other women pursuing business opportunity.
